Emerging Perspectives on Urban Morphology: Researching and Learning through multiple practices

EPUM is an international research project which aims at the integration of different urban form research and teaching approaches through pedagogic innovation and Information and Communication Technology (ICT). The activities of this 28 months project (2017-2020) are funded by Erasmus+ and focus on the development of an innovative, open and inclusive system of teaching and training in urban form from a multidisciplinary perspective, capable of enabling the current and future generation of planning and design professionals to address comprehensively and effectively the variety of issues and challenges faced by contemporary cities. This website provides information about the project activities to partners and to other parties interested in the work of the project.

Students of the Master’s Degree Seminar in Sustainable Urban Design, organised by prof. Marco Maretto, prof. Barbara Gherri and Prof Marta Calzolari at the University of Parma, initiated Collaborative Learning Activities in EPUM’ digital platform (epumplatform.eu).  In Spring and Summer 2020 the seminar theme is “Interrupted Cities: The Buffer Zone of Nicosia (Cyprus)”.

The seminar adopts a methodology (RAM) that combines the tools of Urban Morphology with those of Environmental Analysis and Urban Design (see Maretto, M., (2018), Teaching Urban Morphology in a Sustainable perspective, in Oliveira, V. (ed.), “Teaching Urban Morphology”, Springer).
